The Lathe Class Monitor Cruiser is a Cruiser class vessel of the Adeptus Mechanicus unique to the Calixis Sector.[1]

Like many Mechanicum ships, the Lathe Class specializes in aiding Explorator Fleets. The design was uncovered in the deep data-vaults of Het in the Lathe System during the Angevin Crusade. It differs from many Light Cruisers, with an emphasis on long-ranged detection and endurance rather than speed and manuverability. Operated correctly, it can operate without refit and resupply for decades.[1]

The Lathe Class eventually gave birth to a variant design known as the Secutor Class Monitor Cruiser.[1]
